A man in military-style gear entered a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, and began firing a rifle

A mass-shooting incident occurred early on Saturday afternoon in Buffalo, the second-largest city in the state of New York.

A gunman armed with a rifle entered a local supermarket, opening fire on the shoppers. The man, donning military-style gear, was apparently acting alone, local media have reported, citing law enforcement.

“It’s like walking onto a horror movie, but everything is real,” a police officer at the scene was quoted as saying by the Buffalo News.

So far, no official tally has been provided, while various media offered conflicting accounts on the casualties, with some outlets mentioning figures of between seven to 10 fatalities.

The fate of the gunman remains unclear as well. While local police said on Twitter that the “shooter is in custody,” law enforcement sources told media that he’d actually been shot dead at the scene.

The attacker reportedly live-streamed the shooting spree on Twitch streaming platform. Several graphic screenshots purportedly taken from the stream, showing a body lying on the floor and a woman getting shot in her head, are circulating online.
